The city of Ankeny doesn’t want you to stay indoors Wednesday.

It’s the All City Play Day.

Hawkeye and Wagner parks will become playgrounds with more than 20-activity stations for people of any age. The games include, big wheel races, water fights with firefighters, a climbing wall station and more.

The event runs 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and admission is free.

This year, the city of Ankeny encourages residents to post their pictures of what they did at the parks, on the city’s Facebook page. The photo with the most likes, gets a $25 gift certificate for pizza.

The contest ends next Wednesday.
